March 13, 2022 Sunday Post 15

The Sunday Post is hosted by the wonderful Kimberly, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week, take a look ahead, and showcase our new treasures—I mean books!

This Week

The weather has been wacky (we actually got snow yesterday—and it stuck!) and the news has been… well, we all know how heartbreaking the war in Ukraine is. I haven’t been sleeping well, and then we lost an hour last night, due to the start Daylight Savings Time, so I’m tired today. But we had a very good Spinners and Weavers Guild meeting yesterday (on Zoom), and I’m reading a new-to-me author I really like. And a family member adopted two kittens this week and has been sending us adorable photos and videos, which has really lifted my spirits.

What I’ve Been Reading/Watching

Reading: I went on a Celia Lake binge this week. She’s a new author I discovered last summer; she writes gentle, slow-paced, thoughtful historical fantasy romance. I read Eclipse (book #3) last summer, and decided this week that her books were just what I was in the mood for in my current bouts of insomnia… so I bought the rest of the series. So far, I have read Carry On and The Fossil Door, reread Eclipse, and then read Fool’s Gold. I started The Hare and the Oak this weekend. And it’s been good for my Goodreads challenge; I’m three books ahead of schedule!

Listening to: I’m listening Index, a History of The, which I am thoroughly enjoying. I’m really glad I have a print version to look at after I finish a section, both for the occasional illustrations and examples, and so I can see all the names and foreign words. I’m not at all sure the narrator is pronouncing the Latin properly, so it helps if I look at it afterward.

Watching: Star Trek: Discovery Season 4; Foyle’s War Season 6; Partners in Crime (the 1980s version, with Francesca Annis and James Warwick.)

    I’m not happy about Daylight Saving Time today either. I wish “they” would just spring forward and then never fall back again. It’d be so much before on our health. How fun about the two new kittens. I love kittens and cats. 🙂

    I’m reading Six Crimson Cranes right now with Melody and really enjoying it. It’s a fun retelling of The Six Swans. 🙂 Hope you have a good week.

    The time change always screws up my internal clock lol and I’m sure this time will be no exception.

    I’m looking forward to trying Huber’s books one of these years!

    Glad you found a series that you like enough to read most of them! I have Singapore Sapphire waiting for me to finish it.

      Between work and current events, I’m not sleeping well at all (but I’m getting more reading done due to the lack of sleep. Silver linings?) I hope you, too, can find some peace and rest!
